Humanoid insect

A bipedal insectoid hologram (2364)

An insectoid is a non-humanoid type of lifeform which shares ancestry with insects. They sometimes share traits with humanoids, such as being bipedal. An example of an insectoid species was the Kaferians of the planet Kaferia. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

300 million years ago, an ancient insectoid species operated a pod ship in the vicinity of Questar M-17 and was infiltrated by a magnetic organism. Once infested, the crew opted to destroy their own ship, rather than spread the malevolent creature to other planets. (TAS: "Beyond the Farthest Star")

In 2153, the Xindi-Insectoids were among the first sentient insectoid species encountered by a Starfleet vessel, and were often colloquially referred to as "Insectoids." (ENT: "The Xindi")

By 2269, at least two species of insectoids had been encountered. (TAS: "The Time Trap", "The Jihad")

The Jarada were a reclusive insectoid species which were encountered by the Federation in the 24th century. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")
